Exploring This World from “Blood”

 ~ System of the Universe ~

Nut and Mind are high school students and One is a teacher from Mab-ueng School of Sufficiency Economy, an alternative school in Thailand. They have been staying in Konohana Family for three months since May 27th. As a part of the program to expand their worldview, they have had four occasions to deepen their understanding with the theme of “Food” for four times. In the 4th session, they had the opportunity of exploring the “blood” of this world with the theme of “Spiritual Evolution”.

Spiritual Evolution -2

 

Isadon:
Do you say Shinzou 「心臓」(heart) as “organ of heart” in English?

Yoko:
Shinzou「心臓」 (heart) is called “heart” in English.

Isadon:
Heart also means Kokoro 「心」(mind and spirit), doesn’t it?

Yoko:
In English both Kokoro 「心」and Shinzou「心臓」 are described as the same term, heart.

Isadon:
That is the same, isn’t it? How do you describe Shinzou 「心臓」(heart) in Thai?

One:
Kokoro 「心」is described as “Jitwinyan” and Shinzou 「心臓」(organ) is described as “Huajai”. The word, “Huajai” relates to Kokoro「心」.

Isadon:
That means both Kokoro「心」and Shinzou 「心臓」relate to 「心」(heart). In English both words are in common.

Shinzou「心臓」means center of the organ and it sends blood all over the body and the body functions. This is the same structure for the earth, the solar system and the universe. In terms of the solar system, the heart plays the role of the Sun. Therefore, depending on what the sun releases, movement of other planets are found. That is how the solar system operates.

In our body, when your mind gets excited, your heart beats a lot. Therefore, depending on whether your emotional state is excited or calm, an order goes to the heart, and how the blood is sent influences our activities. If your diet is unbalanced, the quality of your blood goes down. Putting a burden on your heart means polluting the person’s life and leads your life in a wrong direction.

Mind:
My teacher One supplementally explained “In order to live healthily, it is necessary to have a heart with goodwill and peace. If you get angry and irritated, your emotional ups and downs are erratic, your health is also like being on a roller coaster, ups and downs become erratic and cannot be healthy.” By hearing that, I feel I was slapped in the face.

Isadon:
It is important to choose good food in order to not to become a burden to your body, and keep your mind calm to judge things correctly. In any case, polluting blood caused by “Kokoro 「心」” will pollute your blood in your life habits. By polluting your blood, it influences other parts of organs and becomes unhealthy, and finally, this will result in death with stoppage of the heart. Therefore, it is important to maintain a beautiful body, a beautiful heart, and a beautiful life which do not pollute blood.

Human blood is a life itself, and that circulates life and distributes it to all equally. If the blood was polluted, pollution will be distributed to everywhere. And if the blood tube which is a passage of blood was crushed, the further parts from that point will be rotten.

Nut:
It is a very easy conclusion!

Isadon:
In fact, in the human society, there is a thing that circulates like blood and connects everything equally. What do you think of “blood of human society”?

Nut:
Isadon gives us a good question!

Isadon:
Ha, ha, ha.

Nut:
In a society, we influence each other by our activities and communication. I think if one group is not happy in the society, their unhappy vibrancy will be passed on to other groups by their words and actions, thus the current unhappy society is created. That caused by our thinking and actions. Therefore, it is necessary to think and act consciously in order to not to spread bad vibrancy to the society.

Isadon:
If we compare that to our body, the blood carries our heart as habit and expresses it. Human society is one creature in this case. So, what would be the thing which plays the role of blood which is equally distributed to the society?

What Nut expressed right now is the pollution of blood. There is a thing that carries pollution and beauty in the human society. That turns into polluted or beautiful things depending on the human mind. Our blood also becomes dirty or beautiful depending on our own heart, doesn’t it?

Three Thai people:
(They thought for a while)We give up!!

Isadon:
OK, I will give you the answer. (Laugh) That is “Money”.

One:
I also thought that is “ego”.

Isadon:
“Ego” is carried by money. Originally, money exists as a social system to distribute to everyone equally; however, there is some money that is kept in one place and not distributed equally. When the blood gets polluted in our body, it is purified through kidney and liver. In the same way, there is dirty money in the world that is used for crimes and wars. People’s heart can purify that kind of money.

Nut:
I understand why people do money laundering.

Isadon:
That is right. Well, I give you the next question. What do you think the “blood of the earth”? What is the most important thing for the circulation of life of the earth?

One:
Air or water?

Mind:
I think that is water.

Nut:
I think that is the natural system.

Isadon:
That is “water”. Water healthily carries the system of nature. That is the same as blood in our body.

Mind:
We, each human being, are the cells of the earth, if there is no water, the earth will die and as a cell, we will die out.

Isadon:
If so, the natural ecological network will not be maintained. When the water is polluted, the pollution will spread to all other lives.

One:
Our king also said the same thing, “Water is life”.

Isadon:
Well, the next question♪ What plays the role of the heart that circulates water which is the blood for the earth?

Nut:
I cannot respond if I do not concentrate to think since Isadon’s questions are becoming more and more difficult! It is more difficult than the national university entrance examination.

Isadon:
Since this is an important question, please think seriously. This is a very important matter.

Nut:
Isadon, please give us a hint!

Isadon:
That is given equally to all lives.

Nut:
Is that time?

Mind:
Is that soil??

Isadon:
Before the soil.

Mind:
It must be microorganisms!

Isadon:
That makes life to circulate and to nurture.
Here is the hint! That falls down from the sky.

Nut:
Is that rain?

Isadon:
The rain is also made of it. That is the most important thing for life.

Mind:
Is that spirit?

Isadon:
If the blood for the earth is water, will the water circulate as blood does? In our body, the system for circulating our blood is the heart. If so, what takes the role to circulate the water which is the blood of the earth? That falls down from the sky equally to everyone. That is the most important for life and also more important than water.

One:
Energy?

Isadon:
Yes, it is energy, but that is the source of energy.

Three Thai people:
We do not know ~!! (Laugh)

Isadon:
Do you give up? (Laugh) If you hear that answer, you will totally “understand!!” ♪ That is the source of all lives. That is the Sun.

Nut&Mind:
Ah~! (Laugh)

One:
However, the sun does not fall down to the earth, does it??

Isadon:
The sun light falls down to the earth and the sun will circulate the water. The sun light itself will not get polluted. Receiving the sun light, circulating blood of water, air and soil will get polluted

Well, I have a next question!! If the blood of the earth is water and its heart is the sun, what would be the “blood of the solar system”?

Mind:
I will think harder …

Isadon:
If you think it is difficult. Just imagine how the solar system is structured.

Mind:
Is that star?

Isadon:
That makes stars cooperate and circulate.

One: :
Is that the movement of each planet?

Isadon:
That is the source that creates them and makes them cooperate. Do you all give up? (Laugh)

Mind:
I give up!

Nut:
Is that the force of magnetic field?

Isadon:
Yes, it is! That is the “magnetic field”.  The solar magnetic field makes cooperation and circulation possible in the solar system. Well, this is the last question. What do you think is the “blood of the universe”?

What consolidates the whole universe is “the Spirit”. In this sense, the Spirit is the massive spirit, and existence of soul. That is the divine.

Today, I talked about blood of human body, blood of human society, blood of the earth, blood of the solar system, and blood of the universe. The blood of human society is money, the blood of the earth is water, the blood of the solar system is magnetic field, and the blood of the universe is the spirit.

As the scale is getting larger and larger, the materialistic staff will vanish and only the spiritual element will remain. As the thing minimizes to our body size, its density increases and becomes a physical matter. As the size becomes smaller and smaller, the physical matter vanishes and only spiritual matter remains. As it goes back to “KA”, the extreme smallest particle of the universe, the being as a phenomenon will vanish.

This means, our body describes the best condition to see the state of our heart (Kokoro). The state of the blood exactly shows our state of spirit (Kokoro). Pollution of blood has a physical element and a spiritual element. Money, the blood of the society also has physical pollution and spiritual pollution. Thus, everything is in the same system.

That is why if one’s spirit (Kokoro) is beautiful, the blood of the person is beautiful, and the person is physically healthy and lives a good life.

 

If Everyone’s Mind in the World Becomes ONE

Himi-chan is a 7-year-old girl who was born and grown up at Konohana Family. During the summer holiday, she researched on clouds in the sky because she wanted to know about shapes and movement of cloud.

One day, when she was walking with Hitomi who was assisting her research by taking photos, and talked about the following story.

—————————————————————————

If Everyone’s Mind in the World Becomes ONE

 

There is such a thing as a country
It is countries that make wars
So, even if one country becomes peaceful
The world cannot be peaceful

There is also such a thing as the world
If everyone makes ONE PEACE
The world can be peaceful!

I came from the place of the sun
In the place of the sun
There is no country

The rice of the sun is not hot but warm
The sweets of the sun are small rainbow candies

The rainbow candy has 500% of invisible and shiny light

If you eat that candy
You will become smart and bask in power

In the place of the sun
Everyone can use magic

In the place of the sun
There are carpets made of fluffy clouds like trampolines
In the hallways of the houses

In the place of the sun
All the plants, insects, animals and birds can talk

Everyone understands each other’s mind rather than talks

There are also big rainbow locusts
Which are very gentle

In the place of the sun
Both children and adults always play and laugh

So, there is no war

In the place of the sun
There is neither the death penalty nor prisons
There are no policemen, either

However, the king of the sun sometimes becomes angry

The king of the sun is watching the Earth
He knows humans make wars

So, he told me to go to the Earth,
Find my friends
And settle the wars a little bit

Then, I was born on Earth

When I asked the king of the sun to drop me into the sea of the Earth
He gently guided me toward the Earth
And then I came down to the Konohana Family in Japan!!

There is a man called Isadon in the Konohana Family

The king of the sun says
Isadon* is greater than the Japanese Prime Minister
He also says Isadon is like a king to govern the Earth

Isadon says there is only one life
So we should value it

Then I imagined
“What kind of shape one life would be?”
“If everyone’s mind in the world is put together
What will happen?”

If everyone’s mind in the world becomes ONE
The world will become peaceful
And right away there will be no war!

When I grow up
I am going to try to make
Everyone’s mind in the world become ONE
